Wow, what a soggy weekend we had for the Southern Agricultural Show. Sorry to all those who had their tents and things blow away on Saturday. This got me thinking about one of my favourite rainy day dishes – SLOPPY DAVE’S HOT DOGS. It’s a takeoff on the wildly popular American Sloppy Joe but made with Dave’s Delicious hot dogs instead of minced beef. Get your packs of hot dogs at any of our shops (in Ramsey’s St. Paul’s Square or in Douglas on Ballaquayle Road next to Kinrade‘s Pharmacy), Agrimark or online and you too can be nice and comfy inside with some Sloppy Dave’s Hot Dogs.
SLOPPY DAVE’S HOT DOGS
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (preferably Dave’s own brand – Sweet Davey J’s American Style BBQ Sauce)
1 – 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 pound (two packages) Dave’s Delicious Dogs (pork, beef or Mr. T’s 1/2 beef & 1/2 pork) hot dogs cut into 1/4 inch slices
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
8 hot dog or hamburger buns split
1. Heat oil in 10 inch skillet over medium heat. Cook bell pepper and onion in oil stirring occasionally until onion is tender.
2. Stir in barbecue sauce, tomato sauce and hot dogs. Simmer uncovered ten minutes stirring occasionally. Fill buns with hot dog mixture and cover meat mixture on buns with shredded cheese. Serve along with your favourite beverage, but my suggestion is with Dave’s American Fairground Lemonade with or without a couple ounces of your favourite vodka.
